Heating and cooling systems all have a normal range of sounds that they constantly make, but they don’t need to be disruptive or really even heard. If your system is making weird sounds, it usually highlights that it should have heating and cooling service.
Note the sounds you’re hearing, turn your system off and call in professionals like Econo Air. You may find that your system simply has a loose part, but it could also indicate that it needs a larger repair. Understanding how to pass along the sounds your system is making can help the heating and cooling service technician understand the problem.
Here are a couple of the more normal sounds that show a need for heating and cooling service and their possible causes:
- Rattling, banging, clanking or thumping—while rattling normally indicates a loose part, louder banging or thumping sounds might mean a component of your heating and cooling system has completely quick working or become unattached.
- Repetitive clicking—If you listen closely, you can hear a clicking sound when your heating and cooling system flips on and off. This is regular. However, if you’re hearing this sound again and again, you likely need a heating and cooling service appointment to check if it’s something with the system’s relay or its electrical control.
